As I scrolled through the Vogue archive of the 2013 Spring/Summer collections, this particular collection didn't just grab my attention but it basically captivated my senses! This collection to me is nothing short of amazing even though I'm not 100% sure on how to pronounce her name Mary Katrantzou is an absolute genius, her collection's not just a mere compilation of assorted garments but individual masterpieces.
She took the massively popular Aztec trend and made it couture by infusing it with oriental style fabrics and stamps! I mean talk about innovation in fashion. I believe this epitomises Coco Chanel's famous quote 'Fashion is in the sky, in the streets, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening' Well Mary obviously agrees as she found a way of even incorporating the postage system into her designs how chic. She also married stiff boxy materials with high necklines to add that subtle hint of androgyny which of coarse I adore.Just looking at the collection you can see the creator is a true craftswoman; as her clothes ooze a different type of class and sophistication to the norm. I cant believe before this collection I hadn't known of her but now I do, I just cant wait to see what she comes up with next. Above are just a few of her 2013 Spring/Summer peaces I picked, to be in awe of the entire show click here. Have an OhsoFabulous weekend dears! xox
